I've got the black one There's no way I could afford the insurance on that. My rates went up considerably this year, even though I have a spotless driving records for over 3 years.... Maybe in 2 years when the prices come down on them

I 'd get the red white and blue one and paint the blue part white fo' sho. I love the ample storage of the 929, but for 20
extra horses ill give it up.

I don't know about the styling compared to the 600RR. I love the the 600RR stlying but the side fairings on this 1000 does nothing for me. I was going to upgrade next year but I think I will be waiting for another redesign or step down to the 600.

Sorry but, ugly . Glad I have my '02. Thanks for the pics Ron! You'd (I'd, at least) think Honda could do better than that!

I too think the 954 looks better. That under seat muffler detracts from the shape of the rear cowl.

No wonder all the early photoshop pictures looked like a cut and paste job. The real thing has styling from different bikes for different bits.

To me it just doesn't look like a single bike, the styling is just not consistent from front to tail, perhaps in the flesh it might look better.

And I know why the swingarm changed but to me it's plain ugly compared to the piece of art the 954 has for a swingarm.

I'll definitley need time for it to grow on me.

I think it looks awesome, especially the red/black. But then again I still think Cyber's R/W 929 looks better than either 929 or any 954. It's about the ride anyway, let's see what they say about how it rides.

Booth,

I agree, but I might be biased

To me, there's no white like Honda white a la 93 VFR or 00 929. But you do know I don't have that bike anymore don't you?

I'll give you one guess what I got (If you've read anything I've posted in the last several weeks, the answer will be obvious)

Obviously, aesthetics is a very personal thing. But you're absolutely correct, it's about the ride. I'm just as curious as the rest of you as to what the final numbers will be on the latest rendition
